The Annual E. F. Schumacher Lectures include some of the foremost voices on a new economics.
Charles "Chuck" Turner has been a Boston City Councilor representing Roxbury since 1999, well known for challenging education inequality, discrimination, and neighborhood gentrification. He has championed and been actively involved with cooperatives and worker-owned enterprises. For many years he was a leader with the Industrial Cooperative Association (now the ICA Group), where he provided training on worker-ownership issues.
As the old paradigm of materialism that is causing social, ecological, and economic injustices crumbles, it is essential to consciously participate in the shaping of a new paradigm. Charles Turner describes the transition from a material to a spiritual consciousness, saying, "We have gone through the materialization of consciousness to the extent that this age has focused on human beings as material objects . . . and now we are on the brink of an age that will bring the opportunity for our consciousness to be spiritualized."
